Simlu: Long Tunic Tank Top with Criss-Cross straps #Review #Simlu

In the world of fashion, sometimes a simple tank that stays put, keeps it’s shape and lasts is not and easy find. So many of my tank tops have been made into pajama tops, gardening tops and even clothing I paint and do crafts in because they just did not make the cut when it came to everyday wear. The last thing I want to do, is fight with my clothes. Quality matters in both materials and dyes used. I have so many kind-of-black tank tops because after a few washes and even using Woolite for darks, the black turned more like a bluish tint or has that ever loved white haze some black clothing get. I wash everything of this kind even in the delicate cycle and that still can not make a difference when you just start with a bad purchase.

Like everyone, I buy on sale because paying full price is just against my shopping religion 🙂 . This means I usually pay around $3 to $5 per tank top, unless I score a sale where last seasons colors are being cleared out for 4 tops for $10. I sometimes will pay $10 if the color and fit is just perfect.

When Simlu offered I try out of their tank tops at no cost, my first thought was how I buy everything on Amazon except for clothing. Amazon has a great free return policy when it comes to fashion purchases and I have tried shoes but never actual clothes. This was a new area for me!

The Simlu tank top has a cross-over strap pattern, that is already a bit different from every other tank I already own. You get comfort and shape retention by the mix of materials being used, 95% cotton and 5% spandex. I went with a simple black color, as I tend to go through this hue a little quicker because it’s a color that can exhibit age a little sooner than the others.

Retail Price Point: $10.99 for one tank top from Simlu and you can choose from three different sizes from small to large. You also have several colors to choose from, a total of 12 and shipping is free for Prime Amazon members, including returns.

Verdict:
I received the tank top quickly and it came in a plastic bag with a sheet of tissue paper, nicely folded. So, the presentation was like kind to, which you get when ordering from a catalog. The dyes were not strong in scent and the material felt soft. It’s a long tunic, so no worries in fighting with a short tank that always needs adjusting. I usually wear a small in most brands but because I was unsure how this was going to fit in the chest area, I opted for a size medium. The tank top is a comfortable medium with a nice stretch but does not thin out like some thin cotton shirts do. The bottom area along the waist is a little bigger but because the material lays nice, I don’t look sloppy and I just get a little more added comfort. The chest area has a little bunch finish towards the center and this does add a cute detail and again different from the common tank tops that most companies sell as for “layering”. I want a tank top shirt that can be a shirt itself when needed (so not ultra thin) but also wears well when I want to wear it under a see through shirt or just under another top. The Simlu tank top fits the bill and around $10 you get the shirt, plus the shipping and that is a pretty fair price with convince added.
